Implement Configuration Management Databases that Deliver Rapid ROI and Sustained Business Value

Implementing an enterprise-wide Configuration Management Database (CMDB) is one of the most influential actions an IT organization can take to improve service delivery and bridge the gap between technology and the business. With a well-designed CMDB in place, companies are better positioned to manage and optimize IT infrastructure, applications, and services; automate more IT management tasks; and restrain burgeoning costs. Now, there’s an objective, vendor-independent guide to making a CMDB work in your organization. The CMDB Imperative presents a start-to-finish implementation methodology that works and describes how the CMDB is shifting to the superior Configuration Management System (CMS).

Expert CMDB industry analyst Glenn O’Donnell and leading-edge architect and practitioner Carlos Casanova first review the drivers behind a CMDB and the technical, economic, cultural, and political obstacles to success. Drawing on the experiences of hundreds of organizations, they present indispensable guidance on architecting and customizing CMDB solutions to your specific environment. They’ll guide you through planning, implementation, transitioning into production, day-to-day operation and maintenance, and much more. Coverage includes

Defining the tasks and activities associated with configuration management Understanding the CMDB’s role in ITIL and the relationship between CMDBs and ITIL v3’s CMS Building software models that accurately represent each entity in your IT environment Ensuring information accuracy via change management and automated discovery Understanding the state of the CMDB market and selling the CMDB within your organization Creating federated CMDB architectures that successfully balance autonomy with centralized control Planning a deployment strategy that sets appropriate priorities and reflects a realistic view of your organization’s maturity Integrating systems and leveraging established and emerging standards Previewing the future of the CMDB/CMS and how it will be impacted by key trends such as virtualization, SOA, mobility, convergence, and “flexi-sourcing”

I have now read the first four chapters and it is all about where I am as a Configuration Manager. The authors are not advocating a CMDB but rather its more correct replacement, the Management Data Repositories (MDRs) and the more capable Configuration Management System (CMS).

This book should help turn my ITIL V2 CMDB problems into a wealth of MDR and CMS opportunities. While I may not be able to convince upper management to adopt ITIL V3, this book has given me a great idea to propose MDRs and CMS in an ITIL V2.5 manner until we are ready to go full ITIL V3.

I sincerely thank the authors for this book since I have been living the CMDB nightmare for 3 years. We've done somethings right but now we can do better since the authors have given us a laid out road map versus all the online, high-level hype and white paper arguments that never really helped a Configuration Manager with how to really be successful.

So, if you're looking for a return on your investment, the cost of this book, and some piece of mind then BUY this book.

Another great benefit, the book is written well, is interesting, and very easy to read.

As a Configuration Manager I find it very hard to find books that explain clearly the benefits of CMDB such as business impact. There still seems to be a large number of organisations that see the CMDB as an Asset Management database.

Glenn and Carlos explain very simply but in great detail the benefits of CMDB and what they can do to help a business when set up correctly. It is a breath of fresh air to hear people talking about different methods of building a CMDB and not just trying to do a big bang approach which in my opinion is destined to fail.

As a Configuration Manger I found myself turning to this book as a religious person would to a bible, as Configuration Managers tend to be very lonely people in an organisation and must find support of their methods from outside their organisation as so many organisations cannot understand the complexity of a properly working large CMDB.

This book also suits people who have heard the term CMDB or been involved in other areas of ITIL as it really does explain everything that you need to know. Glenn and Carlos have written this from a practitioner point of view and not from a theory point of view.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

As expected

O'Donnell nails it. If you don't have any experience with design and implementation of a CMDB (or central config repository) read this and do what he says.... you won't be let down.

CMDB has been a really hard concept to understand & implement right, now with the ITILv3 approach of a CMS would be even harder, this book is a MUST to get an insight of the concepts with a how to define its strategy and how to make it come true with continual improvements...very complete on the approach & a simple way to present it. Very good for practitioners & for lectures at IT masters programs :-)

I have had this book since early March 2009 and am not complete with it yet...but... what I have read is great. If you are looking for deep technical guidance on setting up a CMDB, buy another book on VSS, Serena, ClearCase, Subversion or whatever you plan on using.

However, ODonnell/Casanova's book covers configuration management at an enterprise and strategic level and how critical CM and a CMS is to support development methodolgies and support methodologies (al la.. ITIL/ITSM). It also stretches the common concept that a CMDB is for code version control and management, ODonnell/Casanova suggest that a HR system contains a partition of the CMDB for those configuration items we refer to as "employees" (perm and contract and outsourced...), and that other systems are also forms of CMDBs because they manage other assets of an enterprise that have potential to be changed in status, location, cost, or relationships.

There ARE some basic architecture guidelines in the book that cover various federation schemes and other considerations - these will be useful for a CM Manager, Chief Data Officer, VP of Data, or architect supporting the development, testing, and code & document management environments.

Again, this is a book very useful for IT management to develop their strategy for implementing a CMS or enterprise CMDB, esp for organizations with distributed locations, esp. mutli-nationals or those relying on offshore development or support.

Overall a very good book...
